I know these photos aren’t the best quality, but here are a few photos of my hair.
As I’ve mentioned before, I have the bottom half dreaded, while the top is left untangled and free flowing. This should give you a better idea of what to expect it to look like if you try the same.
I believe it to be a very practical hairstyle. You can still reap all the benefits of having dreads, like tying them together and not having to really maintain your hair, and you can still look like you have free flowing, untangled hair! I usually just wash it all with a baking soda solution (then separate the free flowing hair, brush,) and braid the top half in pigtails. Let all of your hair air dry, then take out the braids! This leaves the hair textured and looks pieced, like your dreads. This makes the two halves look very natural together, and most of the time, you cant even tell that I have locks!
I highly suggest this for those of you who have longer hair but still want a practical style for job searches, interviews, and requirements!
